"Day 1 was quite similar to everything that I had learnt on the beginner course. Whereas Day 2 was when I actually started learning new processes. I would have preferred to learn new processes on both days"

"Andrew was really trying to teach as much as stuff he can withing 2 days session which i really appreciated. He also always come around to check if anyone have problem catching up with what he just taught us and help us out so everyone learned how to do it themselves. Really pleased with Andrew and I feel I've learned something useful for my work in the future. "

"Andrew is a great teacher who is very talented at After Effects - he is very helpful and made the sessions fun and interesting. He has covered the basics which I can now take away and use at work. From this training course I have learnt a lot not just including tools in After Effects but key websites and free resources which I can use along side of it."

"Excellent content - it will be well used in my role when I return to work. My only criticism would be the spec of the machines seemed to prove inconsistent as the day course progressed - scopes were missing, certain aspects of software wouldn't function at times but it didn't really have a major impact on learning. Happy with the experience, thanks again!"

"I attended this course as a refresher ahead of the Level 2 AE course - there was a great deal of content I was familiar with but had lost a lot of reflex memory and a few fundamental items I had lost understanding of. Excellent course, well delivered and great to rebuild my understanding of key principles."

I also think that with even so doing 'just the basics' I am able to share this with my other colleague at work which will also help increase her understanding of After Effects."
